Creating a Bar Graph A step by step guide

Mode of Transport Miles Car659 Walk244 Bus297 Train120 Cycle44 We will now create a bar graph of the data shown below showing: Average Personal Travel Mileage – Wales 2009

Miles travelled Car Walk Bus Train Cycle 100 0 200 300 400 500 600 700 Average Personal Travel Mileage – Wales 2009 Identify how many bars are needed. There are five categories here, so you need five bars. There are no negative values therefore we do not need to extend the axes Identify the scale you need for the other axis. Its highest value must be at least 659 and if possible, it should start at zero. If the bars are on the horizontal axis, the distance scale will be on the vertical axis. Draw and label the two axes. The labels are simply ‘Miles travelled’ for the vertical axis and ‘Mode of transport’ for the horizontal axis. Now add a title Add the bars. Remember to keep the bars separate and to label each one clearly, here we have placed the bars in descending order on the number of miles Mode of transport
